Business Angel FAQs

To become an angel partner, you would need to be a verified member on Aidi's community based platform. After verification, our team would reach out to send you a welcome package and guide you on how to effectively support founders within our community.

There are three unique ways business angels can support founders on Aidi which includes direct equity exchange, syndicate investment and offering of perks or discount services. However, its important to mention that all angel investments involve risks, including possible loss of capital, so only support founders with amounts you can afford to loose.

Aidi does not provide investment advice, hence, individual business angels should make their own decisions or seek independent advice. The value of individual investments can go up as the company grows or raises additional capital on an annual basis. However, Aidi angels can choose to transfer their positions in invested startups to another angel at the approval of each startup management when a priced equity round is announced. In situations of a major liquidity event such as acquisitions or mergers, all angel positions are first attended to, alongside any upside based on the discretion of respective startup managements.
